.SHORT TERM.../Today through Tuesday/

A large upper trough over the Great Basin will move eastward into
the Southern Rockies by Tuesday morning. As a result, this will
push the center of an unseasonably strong ridge that has been 
over the Southeast CONUS the last several days farther to the 
southeast towards the Florida Peninsula and away from the forecast
area. Subsidence from the ridge will likely continue to win out
and suppress any convective development. However, some of the
model guidance has been a bit more supportive of diurnal
convection this afternoon due to the flattening/departure of the
upper ridge and increased southerly flow.

Chances for isolated to widely scattered convection should be
higher during the day Tuesday as the upper ridge moves farther
away and the ejecting trough begins to move into the Central
Plains resulting in increases southwesterly flow aloft. However,
only low-end chance PoPs remain in the forecast. The increased
cloud cover and rain chances should finally bring daytime
temperatures back below 90 degrees F in most locations on Tuesday.

CN

.LONG TERM.../Tuesday Night Through Sunday Night/ 

Upper-level southwest flow aloft to maintain a generally unstable 
atmosphere on Tuesday night with a slight chance of showers and 
thunderstorms possible. 

On Wednesday, an upper-level disturbance progressing northeast 
within mean southwest flow aloft will aid in destabilizing the 
atmosphere during the late afternoon hours. Boundary layer dewpoint 
values in the 70s F combined with increasing low-level speed and 
directional shear will support some strong to severe thunderstorms 
mainly across southeast Oklahoma and adjacent counties in Northeast 
Texas and southwest Arkansas. Hail, damaging winds, and isolated 
tornadoes will be possible. Severe threat is forecast to diminish 
through the evening hours as upper-level support shifts northeast 
toward the Great Lakes region. 

A weak frontal boundary will slip south and linger across the region 
through the remainder of the extended forecast period. Near zonal 
flow aloft will lend to a nearly stagnant pattern characterized by 
widely scattered showers and thunderstorms each day. 

Temperatures throughout the period will influenced by the location 
of the lingering frontal boundary with highs ranging from the mid 
80s across the southeast Oklahoma to the lower 90s across north 
Louisiana and deep east Texas. Similarly lows will range from the 
lower 60s to around 70.
